Tall Ship Providence

01 | 02

The tall ship Providence provides a living link to our rich maritime, naval, and Revolutionary history. Our Providence is a replica of the first ship authorized to serve in the Continental Navy and John Paul Jones’ first American command.

We are open for historical tours year-round, with cruises and charters being offered April-October. Visitors to Providence get a chance to step back in time to see what life was like for sailors aboard this reproduction eighteenth-century sloop. In fair weather, we offer cruises on the Potomac, including family-oriented adventures and those offering adult beverages. You can even rent the ship for special tours or to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or corporate event. Tall Ship Providence also offers an array of educational programming to include virtual programs, scouting programs, and courses for homeschoolers. Come see what adventure awaits aboard Providence!
